RIP Bo Diddley! This Ain’t no Bad Trip

2 06 2008


This is a repost, with added pics, and an extra track! Bo Didds, we’ll miss you!

What can you say about one of the greatest bluesmen of all time…. Acid Test loves Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf etc. especially the mid and late 60’s period. Hard, tough, and chuggin like a midnight freight. Produced by Johnny Otis for Chess, it also features the still young Shuggie. He put out some burner albums around then. Super (and Super Super) Blues Band, The Black Gladiator (pictured above), and this one Where it All Began, whooo-whee.

I believe this is studio “live” but it still sounds great cranked up on the dancefloor. Hand clappin’ and call and response, how can you go wrong? This is one of those tracks that gets people up on it! Another track added from same album, this one called Bad Trip!
